Content: Adoption

Please consider adopting your next family member from the Chilton County Humane Society! We have many wonderful animals brought to us and adopting them to local homes helps us save as many lives as we can. Plus, adopting from the shelter saves you hundreds of dollars over getting a "free" pet.

With a "free to a good home" pet, you have to pay for vet visits for vaccinations and deworming, and then extra for getting the animal spayed or neutered, microchipped and it's rabies shot. 

But if you adopt from the humane society, all this and more is included in the low adoption fee of $125, saving you hundreds of dollars! Your savings are even better if you adopt a cat, check out all our adoption rates below:


Puppies & Adult Dogs $125
Dogs 6 years old and over $50
Cats up to 5 month old $50
Cats 6 months old and over $25

Adoption includes spay or neuter, rabies shot, microchip, up to date on normal shots, bordetella shot, treated for fleas, and deworming.   

PLUS,  you get a free vet visit with a Chilton County vet within 3 days of adoption.

PLUS,  when you adopt from the shelter, you also qualify for 30 days of free pet health insurance with 24 Pet Watch.

Visit this page after adopting your new family member to register your insurance

You can fill out an online adoption application at this link.  

Please help the animals by adopting rather than buying from a breeder!

You can help by making a donation via PayPal by clicking on the "donate" button at the top left. You can also make a donation by mail to our address at P. O. Box 1716, Clanton, AL 35046. 

If you would like to adopt an animal, go to our online adoption application at this link.

Content: We Need Your Help

We receive 250-400 animals a month.  Some animals come to us healthy, while others have been abused, have mange/ringworm/heart worms and so many other issues.  We have a policy to only euthanize those animals who are too sick to save and are suffering just being alive and those who are aggressive and cannot be adopted or rescued.  Often, every kennel is completely full and we have to delay intakes until we have a rescue transport leaving that will free up some kennels.  We want to find all the animals a loving home!


We are a private charitable organization [501 c (3)] and totally depend upon donations from local governments, businesses, citizens and the public.  The Chilton County Commission and the cities of Clanton, Jemison, Maplesville and Thorsby are asked to donate regularly and a few do so.  We do not charge a drop off fee to the citizens of Chilton County.  The Chilton County Commission donated a building years back for our use as a Humane Society.  We greatly appreciate this donation; however, the building was not built for an animal shelter so many things had to be done to function as one.  Over the years we have grown out of this aging facility, but must continue to utilize it as a shelter.  As with all old structures, our facility requires daily maintenance.  There are many ways you can help - donate your time, donate land so that one day we can build, donate a facility, donate a van for animal transport, or donate money!  Contact us at 205-755-9170.  Click the donate button on our home page.  Please help us!
